Our Mission is to inspire students to be responsible, resilient, and personally successful in the rapidly changing 21st century, and to be a student-centered model for educational innovation. In keeping with our mission, New Tech High School has launched its “Center For Excellence” and offers targeted and customized professional development, training, and support to educators locally, in the state, across the country, and around the world.
The Center For Excellence, we leverage our 25+ years of PBL experience to offer a variety of K-12 training options for school staff, teachers, and administrators. Offerings range from Foundational PBL trainings to build a baseline and clarity in learning, to our services designed for those who have already been trained with our Digging Deeper into PBL services. All services can be delivered virtually or in person to meet your needs.
So, what makes us different? Our team of facilitators works directly with your school or district to personalize professional learning to meet your exact needs. We know that truly listening and a steadfast commitment to flexible and trusting relationships results in learning that lasts. We reject the cookie cutter approach to learning. Our work with you will mirror classrooms: inclusive, differentiated, scaffolded and relevant! Let’s learn together.
We believe that our trainings should mirror a high performing classroom of differentiated, scaffolded and personalized. We use our experience to meet your staff where they are at in their learning. Is an overview or our initial PBL training.
Center for Excellence PBL training and long term support: Our most popular pathway for schools and districts. We offer a range of one day to multiple day workshops for individuals, grade-level, or whole school team. We customize our own content based on our experience of using PBL in the classroom for 23 years to meet the needs of your school and district. Moving from theory of implementation on design to how to achieve academic growth and improve skills of students. We also have one year to multiple year school/district support options where we customize to meet your staff. We focus on knowing where staff are at in their implementation and focus on the learning during the course of their projects. We host trainings on our campus in Napa and also travel to schools around the world to support and train teachers. Please reach out to see how we can customize your path and content.
